. specifically the band ozo motley. the state department under a brand new president obama in 2009 authorized the great l.a. latin fusion band to go tour burma. a sort of ambassadors for u.s. culture in that notoriously closed off authoritarian part of the world. burma has only finally ended military rule there as of last year. after president obama makes his visit there this weekend, we have now learned we're going to be sending another american musical act to follow up the president's trip. this time it's going to be singer/songwriter jason mraz. that's how you say it, right? mraz. he's scheduled to play a gig december 16? in rangoon. he's going to be playing outdoors free of charge. only the second time after ozo motley that any western musical act has been there in decades. even though we expect democrats and republicans to fight over everything these days, the associated press notes that republican senate leader mitch mcconnell has for a long time taken a special interest in burma, as a senator. he has not held back in praising president obama for taking this big historic trip to that on
